ABSTRACT:Aim: To determine the correlation between Lip prints, Palm prints and ABO Blood Groups which may help in determining sexual dimorphism and forensic identification.
Materials and Methods: 100 healthy subjects, 18 to 25 years of age and a native of Mangalore population were randomly selected. Lip prints and palm prints were recorded using the manual techniques for each subject along with their authentic blood group report. Lip prints and palm prints were recorded according to classifications given by Suzuki and Tsuchihashi, and Wu et al, respectively.
Results: The most common lip and palm pattern recorded was Type II and Category V respectively in both the genders. The most common blood groups in both genders was B+. Correlation between three parameters was obtained by Pearson correlation statistical analysis.
Conclusion: The lip prints and palm prints of an individual have never been similar and they tend to remain same from birth till death. This study was an effort made by us to associate lip prints, palm prints and blood groups of an individual, to aid in forensic identification.
